Solana Center booth at the San Diego County Fair

With your help Solana Center will be providing compost education to thousands of visitors all Fair long. Volunteers are the life force of our booth, Eco Container, and fun Farm activities. We need 6 people a day for all 26 days of the Fair, so we need all hands on deck!

This is an amazing opportunity to make a big impact while enjoying the vivacity of one of the nations largest county fairs. We engage with over 5,000 people, give hundreds of kids their first experiences with the magic of our living Earth, and provide tools, resources, and inspiration to budding new Eco stewards all over the county.  

Volunteer Duties:

  • Set up Solana Center's booth and Eco Container materials (morning shift)
  • Share information about Solana Center, composting, gardening, and recycling with visitors
  • Help children plant seeds to take home!
  • Assist guests with the Eco Adventure (a new interactive Farm-wide program)
  • Put away booth materials (afternoon shift)

Click "Volunteer Now" to select a shift and sign up. You will receive a volunteer manual with further information on commuting, parking, and running the booth in the week prior to your scheduled day.

Each volunteer will receive two free tickets to the San Diego County Fair (one for you to get in and another to save or give to a friend). 

Get MORE involved:
